On Saturday, March 2, the Little Devil wrestling team traveled to Monticello to compete in the Rowdy Boy Rumble. Thirty-three wrestlers ranging in ages from 4 to 13 represented Grand against wrestlers from other programs in the Four Corners Wrestling Association, which includes Monticello, Blanding, Dove Creek, Piedra Vista, N.M., Aztec, N.M., and several other schools.

Taking first place for the Little Devils in their respective age categories were Daxon Kerby, Ean Ellis, Gail Leavitt, Carson Sheets, Trea Meyer and Tygis Glencoe. Placing second were Caden Swasey, Gannon James, Rowan Phillips, Jairett West, Caison Ault and Dane Glencoe.

Andrew Jones, Landon Young, Peyton Hatathley, Ross Ballard, Lane Peterson, Jaxon Carroll and Oscar Martinez finished the competition in third place, while Breckin Shepherd and Ayden Ceniceros both took fourth place in their age divisions.

The team had 11 wrestlers place fifth. They were: Preston Young, Braxton Martinez, Patrick Reilly, Andrew Butterfield, Bryce Johnston, Cayden Audenried, Jason McKinney, Collin Randall, Hunter Allen, Kaison Guerrero and Tanner Crane.

Dayton Robertson placed sixth in his division at the tournament.

“Our Little Devils were great and showed very good sportsmanship,” said coach Ed Guerrero. “Watching them wrestle and seeing them develop and grow is the best part about coaching.”

The Little Devils’ next tournament will be in Blanding on March 9.
